The five-star rating system is based on Facilities State Inspections, Quality Measures and Staffing Patterns. Facilities receive stars with 1 being the lowest to 5 being the highest possible rating in each of the three categories. The nursing home rating report incorporates data reported through November 04, 2008. The information is current and will continue to be updated. Families wanting more information about GMGH and other local nursing homes can find all data at www.medicare.gov. Once at the website click on the Nursing Home Compare link.
